Our first volunteers have been busy this week preparing the camp at Langidalur and surveying the trails to assess winter damage. In between the snow and rain showers, we have been gathering GPS data and making new trail markers.
The weather conditions have been challenging, but the work has gone very well. A big thank you to our friends at Ferðafélag Íslands for providing accommodation through these wet and stormy nights.
The volunteer camp at Langidalur is now ready… we are just waiting for the sunshine.
Finally after months of talking, Skype meetings, shopping and planning, we are ready for the arrival of our first volunteers of the season.
On Sunday we will open the Langidalur Volunteer Camp and get back to work on the trails. As the snow is now disappearing, the first task will be improving trail marking ahead of the main visitor season.
During the last weeks we have been busy cutting new trail markers and moving equipment and supplies ahead of the volunteers. Now we are ready to start and very much looking forward to the arrival of the team.
Since our arrival in Thórsmörk about a week ago, preparations at Langidalur have been going well and the volunteer camp is now ready for the summer. As well as improvements to the facilities there, our main task has been preparing equipment and supplies for the groups.
As most of the snow has now gone from the area, we have begun checking the trails for damage, lookin at new projects and putting together a work plan for the season. As always, there is plenty to do and in the first weeks we will focus on maintenance and improvements to trail marking and signs.
We very much look forward to the arrival of our first volunteers on May 13th and the summer adventures ahead.
